Chain Event is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9. The name is a pun on the phrases "main event" and "chain of events". This game is very similar to Abandon Ship from Mario Party 2, the night version of What Goes Up... from Mario Party 6 and Flip the Chimp, from Mario Party 8.
The captain begins sliding down the chain and switches to dodge a Spiked Ball. The camera splits to show all players.
Players dodge spiked balls by switching from one side of a chain to the other as they slide down it. As they progress without being hit, players slide down faster, but getting hit stuns them and slows them down. The first player to reach the bottom wins.
To complete the bonus objective in Time Attack mode, the player cannot hit more than one spiked ball.
This minigame is also one of Bowser's Reverse Minigames. This time, victory goes to the player who reaches the bottom last. In order to accomplish this, players should attempt to hit every Spiked Ball they see, rather than avoid them.
The players will reach the bottom of the chain and do their victory or losing poses, depending on their ranking.
